APIs

api.route.post()

Register a handler for HTTP POST requests to the route.

import { api } from '@nitric/sdk';

const customerRoute = api('public').route(`/customers`);

customerRoute.post((ctx) => {
  // construct response for the POST: /customers request...
  const responseBody = {};
  ctx.res.json(responseBody);
});

Parameters


match required string

The path matcher to use for the route. Matchers accept path parameters in the form of a colon prefixed string. The string provided will be used as that path parameter's name when calling middleware and handlers. See create a route with path params


...middleware required HttpMiddleware

One or more middleware functions to use as the handler for HTTP requests. Handlers can be sync or async.


Examples

Register a handler for POST requests

import { api } from '@nitric/sdk';

const PARAM_ID = 'customerId';

const customerRoute = api('public').route(`/customers`);

customerRoute.post((ctx) => {
  // handle the POST request...
  const responseBody = {};
  ctx.res.json(responseBody);
});

Chain functions as a single method handler

When multiple functions are provided they will be called as a chain. If one succeeds, it will move on to the next. This allows middleware to be composed into more complex handlers.

import { api } from '@nitric/sdk';
import { validate } from '../middleware';

const postCustomer = (ctx) => {
  // handle the POST request...
  const responseBody = {};
  ctx.res.json(responseBody);
};

const customerRoute = api('public').route(`/customers`);

customerRoute.post(validate, postCustomer);

Access the request body

The POST request body is accessible from the ctx.req object.

import { api } from '@nitric/sdk';

const customerRoute = api('public').route(`/customers`);

customerRoute.post((ctx) => {
  const customerData = ctx.req.data;
  // parse, validate and store the request payload...
});
